9:00 am
discrimination. they said they were forced to do weigh-ins and could be disciplined if they gained more than 7% of their body weight. they did sign contracts that was okay. the weird part is the men don't have to do any weigh-ins. stay tuned for something that may come out of that like appeal or not. i'm out of time and i'm glad i didn't sign a contract like that. "around the world" is coming at you next. a giant snake about 100 pounds attacks two small boys at a sleepover. should the dangerous reptiles be allowed as pets. major flight delays around the world. it wasn't the weather or security this time. it was a computer glitch. the state department is telling americans in yemen to get out. we'll bring you the latest on the terror threats. welcome to "around the world." i'm susan mazanne malveaux.
9:01 am
>> i'm michael holmes. you have two young boys away from home at a sleepover. this is in canada. >> this could terrify anybody. both of the boys were killed in their sleep and the killer was a 100-pound python escaped its cage. it was in a pet store below. it happened more than a 100 miles from the u.s. border. people keep these things. >> we have the director of the columbus zoo. jake, let's start off with what might have happened here. it has to get upstairs. how uncommon must that have been? >> it's obviously uncommon but snakes in general when it comes, they can do anything.
9:02 am
that didn't surprise me that a snake could get out there. only one man handled him. the snake got loose and they can find their way out of anything. went up through the ceiling, maybe the air-conditioning vent, i don't know and popped out. if it was one of those soft ceilings, just that weight fell through on top of them but what's confusing is when one of these snakes of that size does make that first initial grab, i don't want to get into detail, it immediately circles the prey. it will grab first and circle around whatever that is, animal or person and every time you breathe, take a little breathe, take a tiny breathe. that snake's body will constrict immediately. let's say you stopped. you breathe again, a bit, he
9:03 am
continues to do that. quicker than a blink of an eye. that's how the animal usually, whatever that is succumbs to what happened to the boys. if he had one, what happened to the other one because the snake very rarely, it takes a while for the animal to let go, release that one person and go after the other one unless both were got at one time and wrapped around both of them which is almost inckoconceivablinconceiv. >> why would somebody have this kind of large snake, even if in a pet shop, they were going to sell it to somebody. that seems unbelievable to a lot of us that someone would own. >> here's this thing. i don't know myself. some people have them to either breed or have them for show and don't sell them. i couldn't say if he was or
9:04 am
wasn't selling the animal. people are fascinated by snakes. snakes do have a bad wrap. they're a living creature like any other animal. a lot of people that get snakes for youngsters are little pythons. in the state of ohio we have strict rules. when a snake gets this size it that people get tired of them. as it gets bigger, like in florida these snakes, they put this snakes out there. look at the everglades now. they are consuming. it could be 10,000. they don't even know how many is out there. the everglade situation, the eco system, they could rest.
9:05 am
they passed some rigid laws. what's going to happen as a result of this is may might not be able to get the python. maybe some could buy. the anaconda gets to be 30 feet. that's anybody can go down. >> there's so many unanswered questions. how did it happen? >> and then two kids. that's the other thing. that must be unusual. what a horrible story. the state department has a message for americans in yemen, get out and get out now. this warning following two suspected drone strikes that killed four al qaeda militants. >> the country is at the center of concerns about a possible terrorist attack. they intercepted a message between the leader of al qaeda and operatives telling them to do something. that's what they were worried about what that something is.
9:06 am
nick payton walsh is tracking this. tell us about the possible terrorist attack was in the final stages. ha do we know about this attack. what have we learned? >> reporter: it was a key day leaving many to think it was a result of extremist fervor. something else occurred to warrant this. point out that u.s. travel for some months if you're in yemen was to get out, don't go there. there was somebody that prompted this air lift that the secretary of state thought they had too many diplomatic staff in the region. people have to look at what may have been the cause for this
9:07 am
escalation. something after the chatter that led to the threat and warnings about sunday that prompted 22 diplomats around the world to be closed. the focus is on yemen. a few al qaeda operatives are moved into sunni at the moment. fears of that message to do something may be activating some kind of plot. >> it's surprising that these two senior al qaeda people were talking to each over. they must know they're being listened to. is that an indication perhaps of better surveillance techniques or they lapsed a little bit? >> reporter: in many ways it's extraordinary. the man who succeeded bin laden to keep himself away from american surveillance was foolish enough or unware of how great in advance american surveillance has taken on that
9:08 am
he'd send this message to his new deputy telling him to do something, so to speak. the head of al qaeda and the arabian peninsula would not have been under american surveillance. many questions as to how this significance error he was made. >> thanks so much. nick payton walsh in beirut. the other point too, look at what the disruption has been by the threat of something. nothing has happened. >> we don't know how long that threat will last. it could be months. the day has opinion a bit of a headache. this is for air travelers. the reservation system is used by hundreds of airlines broke down leaving to a lot of delays
9:09 am
and richard quest joining us here. good to see you. how does this work? >> they are called the gds, the global distribution systems. they're various ones. saber is the one we're talking about. it's the big one. that's the one that failed overnight. for several hours there was a massive outage. the sabre announced it was out and announced it was back online again. these systems are used by the airline for reservations to passengers and cost to deal with the bookings. which passengers are on which planes, the meals. all the things between the passenger and the airline is wrapped up. >> what does this say about the
9:10 am
system? >> it's not the airlines in the way nay operate the aircraft. this is about the airlines and their passengers. what do you do? you have to do it by hand. you have to do manual check in. you have to start looking at lists and working out which passengers and what seat. there's why there was this enormous flowover effect as it went wrong. >> what does it look like at the airports? we talked many times about horror stories on the planes, delays and all that. were people really inconvenienced? >> you knew you were going to get there eventually. you would not want to be traveling on the day that the gds goes down. >> thank god it's back. >> good to have you in town. >> all week? >> all week. >> he'll be appearing here all week. here's more of what we're
9:11 am
working on for "around the world" this hour. >> hired to kill when he was just 13 years old. >> i had to take somebody's life that's a day i'll never forget. after that i had no life. >> you kept on killing after that first time at that ranch? >> i had to. >> two american teenagers described how they ended up as hit men for a mexican cartel. substances banned by major league baseball. perfectly legal in other countries. we'll look at what happens when players train somewhere else and then come to play in the u.s. : it was straight out of a movie thriller. $136 million worth of jewels snatched. we'll tell you how much the insurance company is willing to pay to get them back. go anywhere in the world, but you had to leave right now, would you go? man: 'oh i can't go tonight' woman: 'i can't.' hero : that's what expedia asked me. host: book the flight but you have to go right now.

9:15 am
calling it a coup. >> john mccain made that comment today. they are hoping to convince the leaders the return egypt to civilian rule. >> mccain traveled to cairo at the request of president obama. the obama administration has not called the overthrow a coup. morsi was the first democratly elected president. his removal setting off huge protests in the streets of cairo. while there in egypt they plant with leaders. he's determined to resolve dispute. >> he's ready for his words were serious and substantial negotiations.
9:16 am
he does say the u.s. must demonstrate good will and in his words not hide a secret agenda. >> we are for negotiations and int interactions. we are prepared seriously and without wasting any time to enter negotiations which are serious and substantive with the other sides. >> the real question is this an olive branch. the obama administration could be listening carefully. >> it's the religious leader who has the power in iran. it has all the ingredients like a movie, like a classic heist movie. >> i still say it was you. >> i got enough bling already. >> fancy hotel. thieves making off with $136
9:17 am
million worth of jewels belonging to a billionaire. >> where are they? lloyds of london would like to know. they're the insurer and willing to pay to get them back. 136 million, 1.3 million reward. that's not bad. why is it going up so quickly? >> it's not bad. it's a nice sort of retirement plan. the jewelry is worth a lot more money. an expert i was talking to said sometimes insurers pay 20, 25% of the full value secretly. they'll pay to get the jewels back. they'll try this way first. this reward of $1.3 million hoping it will spark some interest especially now they are putting out photos of these jewels. very unique, very unusual.
9:18 am
many jewel thieves already have a buyer when they go into these places. >> does this kind of reward get any results? >> yeah, most people think probably an inside job. it's not unusual somebody would have inside knowledge. unarmed guards in a hotel in an area where there are people walking around, you would think they would be a room locked away. i was told that american hotels would have armed guards. in europe, they don't like to have people with weapons. the only person that had a weapon in that hotel was the thief. >> it's kind of quaint. >> they make it look easy. >> jim is right, in the u.s. they would have bazookas and ak-47s. >> it's fascinating.
9:19 am
>> i'm not going to give you up for 1.3. most of the 13 players suspended yesterday by major league baseball were born in latin american countries. we'll hear why big differences in the game could be contributing to the problems the players are having here in the united states. "i'm part of an american success story," "that starts with one of the world's most advanced distribution systems," "and one of the most efficient trucking networks," "with safe, experienced drivers." "we work directly with manufacturers," "eliminating costly markups,"
9:20 am
"and buy directly from localfy region of the country." "when you see our low prices, remember the wheels turning behind the scenes, delivering for millions of americans, everyday. "dedication: that's the real walmart"
9:21 am
9:22 am
it's a fact that might go unnoticed even by many hard core baseball fans. this is something interesting. other than using banned drugs most of the players who have been suspended recently are from latin america. >> rafael explains why this is significant when it comes to the use of performance enhancing drugs. >> reporter: at this baseball academy in dominican republic, this future of baseball is literally in the making. these young players have a common dream, to make it in the major leagues. they have something else in
9:23 am
common. they all idolize alex rodriguez and are devastated by his suspension. >> translator: it's tough for us dominicans and difficult. we're talking about one of the greatest players. a star that shines no longer. to retire the name is something that's very sad for us. >> reporter: rodriguez born in new york to dominican parents was suspend monday for 211 regular season games amid allegations using performance enhancing drugs. 12 other players agreed to 50 game suspension without pay. the only nonhispanic in the group got a 65-game suspension. he and rodriguez are the only suspended players not born in latin america. >> they're all either from the dominican republic. they invest billions of dollars
9:24 am
in baseball academies in latin america in countries where performance enhancing drugs are legal and available over the counter. some say it's case of major league baseball trying to have their anabolic case and eat it too. >> reporter: eight those suspended comes from that caribbean nation. this is not a coincidence. >> the testing procedures are still incredibly flawed. major league baseball does nothing to make sure that the academies are setting up are clean. there's a lot more work that major league baseball has to do going forward. >> reporter: major league baseball says it drug tests players on contract and prospective players. mlb issued this statement. the minor league drug program covers all players at the club academies and the dominican
9:25 am
republic and venezuela. we conducted over 2,000 tests in latin america last season. back in the dominican republic the current situation doesn't change the pride the players feel about the numerous players. >> translator: we'll keep loving on both players in spite of what has happened. >> rafael romo is here with us. this stuff's all over the place, widely available. >> the main problem is the lack of oversight in some of these countries. we're not trying to single out any particular country. the dominican republic has most of the foreign players to the major league. some can be sold over the counter. you can get them from a doctor. a contact was telling me even
9:26 am
some of the situations used for injured horses, in essence, steroids, are used by some of these players. when you ask mlb they say no, we are very proactive about this. >> we talked to that writer yesterday and they said they're tl trying to have their anabolic cake and eat it too. the league is turning a blind eye. they know they are getting players on steroids. it's something that they know. >> the other side is you have thousands and thousands of kids who are very eager and willing to make it in the big leagues in countries like the dominican republic because they see how
9:27 am
people from their country make it big in the big leagues. there's a lot of pressure on them to bulk up and this is one way. >> a lot of players are supporting huge families back home when they make money. >> we're talking about extended families, friends and even communities that they support. >> very interesting. appreciate it. cnn is tracking down a suspect. this is the benghazi attack. he's not in custody and said the u.s. government has never interviewed him about the attacks. >> erin burnett will be here live with her special investigation. we'll have a chat about it all. . it found out the doctor we needed was at st. anne's. wiggle your toes.

9:31 am
libya east of the country. among the dead was a u.s. ambassad ambassador. >> it's the focus of foreign policy debates. a cnn investigation goes in search of the truth about benghazi. arwa damon talks with a person of interest who says u.s. officials have never questioned him. watch this. >> translator: that night when did you arrive and what did you see? >> translator: this is a journalists interview or an interrogation? >> translator: it's an interview. when we we drew and they were smohooting with medium gun and people panicked, we tried to control traffic. >> translator: did anyone from the american or libya government
9:32 am
side try to get in touch with you? >> translator: never. >> translator: never? >> translator: never. >> translator: if they tried are you ready to meet with them? >> translator: yes but not as an interrogation but like what we're having now. >> this is part of erin burnett out front. what have you learned about him and how involved he was in the actual organization of this attack. >> this is one of the most incredible things. you heard him talking to arwa there. he said i was directing traffic. i'll talk to authorities in a journalistic way. they had not yet spoken to him. there's only person the u.s. listed as a person they thought
9:33 am
were involved. the person is now not, no one has found this person. there's been pictures put out of three other people. no one on the ground in benghazi was familiar with their faces or seen the pictures that were put out. none of those people at this point have been detained. this highlights the difficulty of getting into benghazi and one year later justice has not been served and at this point it may be difficult to imagine justice being served. >> it makes you wonder how thorough investigation is when you look at that. you've interviewed relatives of the four americans who died. i imagine they have a lot of frustration and concern themselves. what do they want? >> it's amazing talking to them. the night when this happened and we got word it was around 7:00 eastern when we got word that an
9:34 am
american died. when you talk to the families and realize this is something that's always going to be an open wound and something personal for them, glen dougherty was very a-political about this. if someone will get justice, it will be done and it will be done by somebody. they want justice and answers. most important they want people to remember and cheryl ben nit, her son ty woods was there that night. one of seals fighting to try to save the ambassador and they did save the lives of some 30 americans. this is a just a quick clip. >> ty perished doing what he love to do and doing it well. my son did the right thing at the right time for the right
9:35 am
reasons. >> that is really what we saw. there was a real sense of pride that their children, their siblings had been there and done this but also real sense this did not need to happen. that's one of the conclusions of the documentary. >> thank you so much. very powerful. you can see more of the one hour special tonight. it's called "the truth about benghazi." there's now new worries about a nuclear plant in japan. this is the same one hit by that deadly earthquake two years ago. t flexibility and convenience. so here are a few reasons to choose university of phoenix. our average class size is only 14 students. our financial tools help you make smart choices about how to pay for school. our faculty have, on average, over 16 years of field experience. we'll help you build a personal career plan. we build programs based on what employers are looking for. our football team is always undefeated. and leading companies are interested in our graduates.
